Risk and reward of 'love'

Age does not protect you from love but love to some extent protects you from age.

Love is risky. We sometimes conclude we know better than to try to increase our capacity to love.

The hurts that can be a part of the adventure of love leave us feeling old and weary.

Love has a will and existence of its own. It shows up at any age, knocking on the heart's door at the most surprising moment.

Then, when we are wise enough to resist the urge to hide and instead open the door, we discover that love makes us feel young again.

I am grateful for the way that love, in all forms of relationship and connection, keeps me feeling young.
